Takuto Hasegawa is an Ordinary High School Student, but his high school is of a different sort. The Magician's Academy, a place dedicated to training mages and mystical creatures of all sorts. It is insane. During a summoning exam, Takuto accidentally summons an insanely powerful familiar in Tanarot, a girl with the mind of a child and enough power to destroy a country. Luckily, Tanarot is loyal to her creator/"husband".

Macademi Wasshoi is very much a Widget Series. Only two of the cast, at best, notice how odd the workings of the world are. There are some serious moments, but for the most part it's off the wall comedy fueled by magic and fanboys.

Based on the Magician's Academy series of Light Novels and turned into a Twelve-Episode Anime.

Those living in the US can watch it legally at Crunchyroll.

Tropes in Macademi Wasshoi include:

  • Absolute Cleavage: Falce's standard garb.
  • Abuse Is Okay When Its Female On Male: Takuto's female schoolmate, Futaba, who tends to hit her brother Hazuki, usually when he teases her about Takuto.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: Nipples do appear on women (and on Hapshiel), but genitalia do not (and, again, are unfortunately silhouetted in Hapshiel's case).
  • Anything That Moves: Hapshiel, to the point that they had to seal him away to get him to stop. However, as the last few episodes show, he genuinely is a caring and loving person... who is a rather huge, sweaty, kinky freakjob with no concept of personal space.
  • Attractive Bent Gender: Takuto makes a pretty good woman, to the amusement of his own harem...and Eitaro.
  • Balance Between Good and Evil: Kept in check because there is an exactly equal number of Good and Evil supernaturals at all times, and always will be due to Creative Sterility. Tanarot could be either one, which would instantly break the balance. During the Climax of Episode 10, the army of Angel/Devil Fetuses that Takuto summons causes the scale to vibrate wildly.
  • Balloon Belly: Falce in Ep. 4.
  • Beehive Barrier: Metallis' Energy Shield, as well as Hapshiel's barrier.
  • Berserk Button: Do not cheat at Moe Moe around Eitaro Sakuma!
    • Murdering the harem? BAD IDEA.
  • Blue and Orange Morality: Falce is a sentient magical staff, and fully aware of it. Her moral compass revolves around how useful she is to her owner.
  • Body Paint: Metallis' idea of a new school uniform — effectively a layer of heavily engineered magical bodypaint. It's chrome colored and 100 percent Fan Service, especially since Suzuka is the one wearing it.
  • Cargo Ship: Trincia (the local supercomputer AI) and... a Rocket. As in, a space ship. A completely normal space ship. Even for this series, this subplot came out of nowhere.
  • Cerebus Syndrome: Episode 10 is when things start hitting the fan. The funny doesn't fully come back until the Bonus Episode.
  • Chest Blaster: Metallis' transformation attempts a Mazinger Z-style Chest Blaster. He runs out of power before executing it. Eitaro's Mega-Eneus, a Humongous Mecha built resembling Eneus, does have Aphrodite's Breast Missiles however.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Suzuho, especially in blue-hair mode.
  • Clothing Damage: Gabriel and Agaliarept have torn up sleeves and scarred arms after blocking a particularly powerful spell mostly used to show just how stupidly powerful Takuto is, since the two are effectively the local God and Satan analogues.
  • Creative Sterility: Demons and Angels are unable to create things of their own — this includes procreation and any and all creative pursuits. This is one of the many, many reasons they're terrified of Tanarot — she's effectively an artificial Angel/Demon and not bound by those rules, meaning she could upset the cosmic balance if she joins one side or the other. Or rather, they're terrified of Takuto, who can create newborn Angels and Demons at will.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Sakuma, the local Otaku Man Child. Acts all moron all the time, but but mess up with his Moe items not even a God or Devil can help you because he'll kick their butt too.
    • And if you mess with his friends, not even the leader of heaven and the leader of hell — at the same time can save your ass.
    • That's because he's actually Samael aka "The Grim Reaper" aka "The Angel of Death", one of the very strongest of the gods.
  • Cute Bruiser: Tanarot. One of the strongest physical fighters in the series. Looks quite young, despite having an awesome bod.
  • Cute Mute: Suzuho's normal personality.
  • The Chew Toy: Metallis. Every episode, something bad is going to happen to him. At least until he's thrown a bone (see below). Then the role shifts to George.
    • Synclavia and Miyabi are officially disavowed by their respective organizations after they're caught, leaving them officially rogue agents — and Sakuma's slaves. He seals their powers, leaving them helpless, and then uses them as Doujinshi assistants, as well as maids / models for his various hobbies (aside from the obvious, considering how lascivious all three of them are). They still don't complain too much, other than the long working hours.
  • Claymation Censor Box: It's as weird as it sounds.
  • Dancing Theme: The OP. Complete with dancing. With the shortest hot-pants ever.
  • Darkest Hour: Yes, this Gag Series has one — The entire Alt!Takuto timeline. He is trapped in a pocket universe where he never discovered magic, which unfortunately means that Alt!Suzuko never discovered it, either — and her split-soul condition is fatal without magical treatment. She dies, days after making it crystal clear how much she loves Alt!Takuto. One of the scenes around the Eyecatch implies that he was days away from suicide, which was the entire point of the pocket universe — to get him to kill himself so that all his power would harmlessly go away, since outright attacking him doesn't work.
    • But then... someone, implied to be Sakuma or Alt!Sakuma, gives him a tiny ray of hope... It takes Alt!Takuto almost a century of school and work (the final project alone takes 40 years to complete, not counting previous failures and the prep time) but he eventually recreates Tanarot... Via science.
  • Dog Girl Ninja Maid: Eneus, one of the very few sane characters in the show.
  • Dropped a Bridget On Him: On the viewer. That shapely body in the shower at the beginning of episode 2? Takuto.
  • Emotionless Girl: Trincia. The one time she expresses an emotion scares the hell out of Takuto and his harem.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Sakuma. Maybe it's his absurdity, maybe it's the fact that he has a beautiful Meido voiced by Ayako Kawasumi, maybe it's his MANLINESS, but he is popular.
  • Gainaxing
  • Genki Girl: Tanarot, and Eineus's "sister" .
  • Go-Go Enslavement: While Miyabi and Synclavia weren't very modest before Eitaro forced them into working for him, they're usually seen in some sort of fanboy fetish outfit afterward. Amusingly, Synclavia's fanboy fetish outfits are less risqué than her regular garb, which was basically BDSM gear crossed with a bikini.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Gabriel and Agaliarept, probably the two most powerful beings in the universe, both decidedly on the opposing side in the "divine balance", and both complete and utter Otaku who are never, ever seen apart.
    • It's further implied that they're actually in a romantic relationship, as they were discovered to be secretly bathing alone together at a hot springs resort, and they were both extremely freaked-out when they were discovered, their reaction being as if they had been caught having an illicit affair (which would make sense, considering their respective positions as official representatives of opposing factions).
      • They even have special pet-names for each other: "Gabu-yan" and "Aga-rin".
  • Grilling the Newbie: Happens to Tanarotte and Suzuho when they join Takuto's regular school... especially after seeing how they act with Takuto. Of course, none of Suzuho's questions got answered.
  • Hadaka Apron: Falce wears it when the normal high school students come over to visit. It's also mentioned in passing as one of the possible new uniforms during the competition, but not seen.
  • Heroic BSOD: After Tanarot is impaled and his subsequent freak-out, Takuto is forcibly contained in a magical supercomputer as they attempt to find the proper Quantum-Magic spell to rewrite history so he never discovers magic. The latest iteration we see contains, amongst other things, a dark blue haired Suzuho talking without her sketchpad. Unfortunately, because her finding magic was dependent on Takuto finding magic, this Suzuho is the Littlest Cancer Patient and she does not get better. Alt!Suzuho dying sends Alt!Takuto right past the Despair Event Horizon, as well. His harem, led by Eitaro, take a Journey to the Center of the Mind to free him.
    • It's implied that Alt!Eitaro (or perhaps just Eitaro, it's unclear if he's free by that point or not) gives him inspiration to create Tanarot anyway, this time using high technology, after 40 years of research.
  • Hero Insurance: In the form of dwarves who quickly repair all the buildings which get destroyed.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Would you believe that Takuto's voice once belonged to Kozuki Kallen and Tsukamoto Tenma and Nina Wang?
  • Hot Springs Episode: A mixed bath, at that.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: The Quirky Miniboss Squad leader, showing she's Not So Harmless.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: Tanarot, Falce and Suzuho all live with Takuto. He's a Chaste Hero.
    • Well, not by choice, at least. It's stated that nothing has happened yet because Takuto doesn't want to choose between any of the girls (implied Tenchi Solution), and Suzaho and Tanarot are perpetually locked in stalemate over who get's to go first with Takuto. Falce, meanwhile, is content to be the last, after the other have already had their turns, which hasn't happened yet.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Falce and Tanarot — both wear clothing (for certain definitions of the term), but neither are in any way bothered by nudity.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Magic or Science, either way, Takuto finds a way to create Tanarot and thus endanger the balance between Heaven and Hell. It's suggested that You Can't Fight Fate in this regard, and it's better just to make sure the situation stays stable.
  • Instant Runes: Most notably whenever Takuto creates something.
  • Intimate Healing: Miyabi is an aggressive practitioner.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Metallis towards Suzuho when she unconsciously mentions Takuto's name while Metallis is trying to save her. He seems to get over it as soon as the episode ends however, when she gives him a gift for saving her, however, his attempts to woo her largely fall to the wayside after his episode.
  • Karma Houdini: No one really suffers any long term consequences of their actions, save Synclavia and Miyabi (beacuse they're The Chew Toy). Even the two teachers who were trying to Ret-Gone Takuto and Suzuho get away without any complaints, because it's insinuated they weren't entirely in the wrong.
  • Kissing Cousins: Suzuho is Takuto's cousin, and this is distant enough to make her a viable haremette.
  • Large Ham: Sakuma, especially when he brings out the large robot maid, and in the last episode when he forces Takuto to help him finish his manga.
  • Les Yay: Suzuho, with both Falce and Miyabi
  • Male Gaze: The intro has quite a few.
  • Macho Camp: Hapshiel the Angel, so very much. Which probably made episode five messed up even by this show's standards.
  • Mecha-Mooks: The army of golems present at the Academy.
  • Medium Blending: Claymation Censor Boxes, as well as Eye Catches.
  • Meido: Miyabi and Synclavia.
  • Meganekko: Suzuho
  • Miko: Miyabi
  • Moe Anthropomorphism: One of Falce's powers is to turn items into living spirits, mainly because she is a living spirit of an item — an absurdly powerful magic staff.
  • Moe Moe: A guiding force of the universe, which is studied in depth by the school.
  • Mood Whiplash: Episode 10. Quirky Miniboss Squad happens upon hero and his harem in their home base, which they mistakenly thought was vacant. So they seal them away to get some privacy. School finds out, and everyone uses it as an excuse to test out their Otaku themed "research" on the squad — mostly various ways to implant Moe into them. So far, so good, typical Wasshoi madness. Quirky Miniboss Squad turns out to be Not So Harmless, horrifically murders Tanarot and the rest of the harem, prompting Takuto to freak right the hell on out and instantly bring upon The End of the World as We Know It via an army of screaming "neutral" angel/demon fetuses. What the hell?
  • New Transfer Student: Tanarot and Suzuho both transfer to Takuto's (non-magical) school. Tanarot under the name of "Tanarot Uncertain". This is never brought up again after the episode it happens in.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Hapshiel, both In-Universe and out. The entire school stops what they're doing to try to beat him up, which doesn't do anything but arouse him.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Miyabi, after Intimate Healing Suzuho.
  • Nobuyuki Hiyama: Professor Franklamb Stein. It's...strange hearing the King of Braves rant about Moe.
  • Not So Harmless: The Quirky Miniboss Squad of Episode 10. Sakuma Eitaro as well, when he reveals that he's not human, and is infact Samael, who is on par if not higher up the totem pole, power wise, than God and Lucifer.
    • Nominally all the cast could be considered this, since they all act like ditzy Otaku but are, in fact, wizards of varying power and species. Takuto probably trumps them all.
  • Oh Crap: Gabriel and Agaliarept when they realize just who SAkuMA EitaRO aka Samaero aka Samael is. Most people would probably know him under a different name — he is on an entire different plateau of power than the rest of the cast, combined. Save, possibly, Takuto.
    • The dwarves at the end of episode 12, who are confident that the new school, Avalon, is built to withstand the fights between Suzuho and Tanarotte. Then they realize that they forgot to put the large screw in...
  • Otaku: Eitaro, who's a professor, a high ranked mage, a mad scientist, and an otaku. Which is a dangerous combination. Also Professor Stein and Agaliarept / Gabriel.
  • Out with a Bang: Alt!Suzuho and Alt!Suzuka. Originally Alt!Takuto thought Alt!Suzuka was just tormenting him, but Alt!Suzuho begs him to go through with it after she regains control. It's never made clear if they did or didn't, and she dies off-screen immediately afterwards.
  • Paid Harem: Eitarou starts out with Eneus, and acquires Synclavia and Miyabi. He doesn't pay them, per se; Eneus is bound by contract as a summoned being, and Synclavia and Miyabi are, er, slaves.
  • Pair the Spares: George/Hapshiel. Really.
  • Pet the Dog: Hapshiel of all people. He actually becomes Georges' mentor in the epilogue after George has his heart broken. Instead of the male-Marshmallow Hell one expects, he actually comes across as a genuinely caring sort. He still gets George to start dressing up like him, though.
  • Petting Zoo People: The Mimiger Z, a gun that gives everyone ears, and, once Eitaro gets done tinkering with it, paws and a tail. Does this ring any bells?
  • Power Fist: Tanarot's weapon of choice. Since they were designed by the staff at the school... they're cat paws.
  • Power Levels: Tanarot's readings are off the charts, in a fashion similar to Dragon Ball — that is, her power level is over 9000.
    • Eitaro even uses a DBZ-like scouter in the first episode, which promptly explodes when reading Tanarot's power level, just after showing it at 100,000.
  • Proud to Be a Geek: Magician's Academy is run by the geeks. Which probably explains a thing or two about the school.
    • Especially evident in Eitarou and Professor Stein.
  • Psychic Powers: As it turns out, both magic and ESP exist in this universe (not the only show in the fall '08 anime season to do that). This is discovered when Suzuho's magic cancel doesn't work on ESP powers.
  • Robot Maid: Giant Mecha Maid, actually, in the form of Eitaro's Mega-Eneus. Complete with Aphrodite-style Oppai Missiles.
  • Puni Plush
  • Ret-Gone: The final solution for dealing with Takuto after his breakdown. Fridge Horror when you realize in the alternate universe he was going under severe depression — the proposed solution appears to have been to find a way to modify the past so he would kill himself before creating Tanarot.
  • RPG Episode: Complete with little sprites for the characters.
  • Saving Christmas: As only Macademi could do, the Christmas episode involves a Chain of Deals, harem infighting in skimpy outfits, Living Toys and a high speed destructive car chase.
  • Schmuck Bait: When Eineus's "sister" shows up in episode 9 and vows to defeat Eitarou Sakuma and bring Eineus home, Sakuma lies and tells her that Hapsiel is Sakuma, and that she should defeat him. Each time she comes back, she gradually grows more and more purplish and weaker, and at the end can barely walk out of the room as Sakuma continues goading her.
  • Serious Business: Magician's Academy, the only place in the world that puts most of its students through a Death Course to decide the next school uniform. The guy who won the last 2 times cheats and wins again.
  • Shapeshifting: Falce can change between all kinds of (generally stick-like) forms. Size is also free game, too — She appears as a pencil in a few episodes, shrinks to around 3 inches tall in another so she can get more enjoyment out of a can of soda, etc etc. Her natural forms are of a cute horned girl, and a magic staff that looks like it belongs in Phantasy Star Online.
  • Shout-Out: Lots of them, scattered throughout each episode with some hilarious ones to Neon Genesis Evangelion in episode 5, and the ending sequence to that same episode was a shout out to the opening theme of Rose of Versailles I'm not kidding seriously.
  • Slasher Smile: Synclavia and Miyabi were very happy to get some help working on the Doujinshi.
  • The Slow Path: Alt!Takuto spends 40 years researching what appears to be biological engineering to recreate Tanarot in the universe he gets stuck in without magic.
  • Split Personality: Suzuka, Suzuho's other side, known as the Midnight Blue Vampire. Her very appearance cancels all magic in the area.
  • Stripperific: Tanarot's standard outfit barely qualifies as pants, and Falce's always wearing an open robe that exposes her panties and her entire cleavage.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Metallis to George and later, Suzuka. Fermi to Agarept.
  • Suicide By Hero: Falche, whose creator died before giving her a name or a purpose in life. She just wants a reason to live, and since she can't find one, she decides to borrow one from the manga she had nearby: a Demon Lord's purpose — namely, dying to the hero in a fantastic final battle. She gets better, and decides to support Takuto as her purpose in life.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Overlaps with Superpowered Good Side, since Sakuma is undoubtedly a good guy, but his real identity as the The King of Poison, Samael clearly proves he is not the kind of person you would want to mess with even if you're God's Left Hand, Gabriel or Satan's Right Hand, Agaliarept themselves, something they discover rather quickly.
    • Do not make Takuto upset. Just don't.
  • Surreal Theme Tune: The OP goes right into insanity mode and barely makes sense.
  • Taking the Bullet: Tanarot to Takuto. She got better, but not in time for Takuto to find out before his epic freakout.
  • Talking with Signs: Suzuho, most of the time.
  • The Power of Love: Metallis' backup power source. Alongside a car battery. ... Mostly the car battery.
    • Also what allows Tanarot to save Takuto, and the both of them to return to reality afterwards.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Metallis, the previously-mentioned Chew Toy, gets a chance to shine when he falls in love with Suzuka, and ends up saving the day in spectacular fashion. Whatever the universe had against Metallis transfers onto George.
  • Those Two Guys: Futaba and Hazuki, Takuto's two friends in the outside world.
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Hapshiel, big time. On the other hand, the only reason he stayed bound for 20 years was his perversity. Also, Agarept's lovesick maid Fermi, who lives for her master to punish her with his lightning bolts.
  • Too Kinky for Gabriel: Hapshiel. When Trincia suggests that Gabriel take him back to Heaven, she acts like she doesn't see him. There is no possible way she couldn't see him.
  • Torpedo Tits: Mega-Eneus has them, as an Aphrodite A parody.
  • Tsundere: Lampshaded. A pair of magically enchanted bunny-ears cause whomever's wearing them to act Tsundere no matter what.
  • Two-Teacher School: Or two and a half. Professor Stein and Professor Sagami are the only teachers we see. Sakuma seems to be an associate professor but he doesn't teach any classes.
  • Unrequited Love Switcheroo: Happens to George and Metallis after the latter falls for Suzuka.
  • Unwanted Harem: Takuto has Tanarot, Suzuho and Falce. Since Eitarou actually wants his, it's more of a Paid Harem.
  • Wham! Episode: Episode 10. Or more specifically, the last 5 minutes of Episode 10.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: Multiple times, especially when people notice Hapshiel for the first time. Not funny at all when Takuto does it at the end of Episode 10.
  • Widget Series: Wooooo, boy.
  • Wizarding School: Apparently of the Discworld, "Keep them busy so they can't do any harm" variety.
  • Verbal Tic: Tanarot, ending all her sentences with "-nano de aru". Suzuho is told to use "-puru" but it doesn't really take.
  • You Are What You Hate: George spends the first few episodes freaking out because Metallis keeps coming thiiiiiss close to confessing to him... and then the rest of the series trying to win him back.
  • Zettai Ryouiki
